Neighbourhood Kirkendall North
Features Located near the Hamilton Amateur Athletic Association Grounds and a short walk from Locke Street, this two-storey home is one of a number of properties in the neighbourhood that are listed for more than $950, 000.
Nestled on Stanley Avenue, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom duplex boasts approximately 2, 000 square feet of living space and has been “thoughtfully updated, ” said Nikhil Bhanwra, a broker with Judy Marsales Real Estate Ltd.
Bhanwra said the current owner of the home has installed a tin ceiling in the hallway of the main floor as well as a custom kitchen in the main unit that features hickory cabinetry, seeded glass, soapstone countertops, accent lighting, a built-in wine rack and a home office space.
“It’s very dapper, ” stated Bhanwra, pointing to other original characteristics such as the working set of pocket doors and the transom above the front door. “It has such lovely features. ”
In its current state, the main floor of the home has one large bedroom and a living room with an ornamental fireplace. There is also a three-piece bathroom and a side deck off the primary suite.
The fully fenced yard features mature trees and a large pergola-covered walkout porch with space for entertaining.
“It’s very forestlike, ” said Bhanwra.
The second floor of the home features a two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment that is tenanted.
Bhanwra said the home could be ideal for someone looking to convert the property to a single-family home or a family who is looking to take over the upstairs unit and have an older family member live on the main floor.
Why is it priced this way? Bhanwra said the price of the house was influenced by the state of the local market and the potential work needed to convert the property to a single-family home.
“It’s an attractive offering in an amazing neighbourhood, ” he added. “The price is very competitive. ”
